Graptemys caglei pseudogeographica ouachitensis geographica nigrinoda oculifera Abstract: BACKGROUND: Changing water levels or other operations at U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) reservoirs may impact critical habitat parameters for map and sawback turtle species. This technical note identifies map and sawback turtle species and habitats potentially impacted by USACE reservoir or other water-control projects as reported by resource managers. Current state and/or Federal legal protection status is summarized and USACE Districts and reservoir projects potentially impacted by map and sawback turtle conservation issues is identified (Table 1). Life-history summaries and habitat requirement descriptions are given for each map or sawback turtle species identified as potentially impacted at reservoir operations. This is a large group of turtles, of which Ii species have either Federal or state protection (Figure 1, Table 2). Six of these species have been associated with environmental issues at 20 USACE projects from 8 USACE Districts (5 USACE Divisions). The 6 turtle species potentially inpacted by reservoir operations include 1 Federally protected species, 1 species currently being considered for Federal protection, and 4 species with protection in at least one state. This technical note includes profiles for the six species potentially impacted by reservoir operations
